Utah All-You-Can-Eat Food Addiction: Revolutionary Improv Haiku

August 20, 2010

I went to an all-you-can-eat buffet in Utah today. It made me so sad to see (mostly women), 2 or 3 times as big as they should be, carrying 2, 3, 4 or 5 FULL plates of food back to their tables, stuffing themselves. It almost made me cry. And I’m not a skinny guy … but I was probably the 2nd smallest guy in the place! It’s amazing that a culture that places so much emphasis on avoiding “sins of the flesh” (drugs, booze, coffee, sex outside of marriage, smoking) can turn a blind eye to gluttony.

What should you do if:/
You can’t drink, smoke, do drugs, sex?/
Eat yourself to death.
Most of the people at this Utah all-you-can-eat buffet are grossly overweight ... and loading up their plates!

She Lifted Me: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

July 20, 2010

She took me in,/
brain, food, heart, soul,
dancing, laughing, roll
on, roll in, rolling again.

I didn’t ask her to.
She just did.
She just was. She just is.
Lifting me when I was through.

With bright, piercing eyes,
taking me down a way
where I could see a different day,
I’d grasp the future in surprise.

She taught me how to take the past
out of the future, and leave it there at last.
